Solutions-based Research

We inform the policy- and decision- making process through evidence that is built using the scientific method. We believe that solutions to plastic pollution and other issues relevant to waste should be informed by facts. As part of our mission, we help build those facts.

Current projects:

Divert and Capture: Microfiber pilot project
Parry Sound pilot project installing washing machine filters with community volunteers.
